Shek O, Hong Kong

(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
A contrast to Hong Kong's tall skyscrapers and big business, the seaside village of Shek O shows the island's other side: pleasant beaches, a relaxed pace, and nature to explore. The area is even home to a prehistoric rock carving, depicting geometric designs and animals. Seemingly untouched by the arrival of the British, this little town has a stronger Chinese feel to it, with narrow lanes, colorful houses, and small temples. A hike up to a popular viewpoint affords a panoramic view of the coastline below. To visit Shek O and other attractions in Hong Kong, use our Hong Kong itinerary maker.

  • 拜託,石澳在東方,海洋公園在西方,車程相距大半小時,何來「石澳在中國香港海洋公園南部」的說法? 比起商業化的赤柱,同是泳客最愛的石澳仍然保存一份悠閒,至今依然純粹是游泳燒烤的地方。天后誕於泳季過後的農曆十月舉行,全港最晚。
